Published May 16, 2013Sofia Coppola has some amassed some stellar musical ties over the years, recruiting Kevin Shields to write songs for 2003's Lost in Translation and tapping her husband Thomas Mars' band Phoenix for Somewhere. Now, she's recruited a similarly impressive lineup of musicians for her upcoming flick, The Bling Ring.
The soundtrack is due out on June 11 through Def Jam, and it will include a heap of tunes from well-known artists like Kanye West, Frank Ocean (featuring Earl Sweatshirt), M.I.A., Sleigh Bells, Rick Ross (featuring Lil Wayne), Phoenix, Can, deadmau5, and Azealia Banks. Nearly all of the material on the soundtrack has already been released, however, and the tracklist includes some extremely famous songs (Kanye's "Power" and "All of the Lights," and M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls," for example).
The film's original score, meanwhile comes courtesy of Daniel Lopatin (better known as Oneohtrix Point Never) and film composer Brian Reitzell (who has worked on Coppola films like Marie Antoinette, Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides). Their original track "Bling Ring Suite" appears here, as does a previously released Oneohtrix Point Never track.
The Bling Ring stars Emma Watson and tells the true story of a group of teenagers who burgled celebrities' homes between 2008 and 2009. It premiered at Cannes earlier this year and will be widely released on June 14.
